So here is to tie the loose ends, based on inputs to the first
round.

 * [1/3] is new; this is a preparatory clean-up to dedup two very
   similar paragraphs in the existing documentation, thanks to the
   idea by Philippe Blain.

 * [2/3] is text taken from Bradley's patch to update the manpages;
   thanks to the preparatory clean-up, we no longer need to
   duplicate the new text.  Grammofix pointed out by Ted Ts'o has
   also been applied.

 * [3/3] clarifies what sign-off means to _this_ project.  This step
   hasn't changed from what has been queued in 'seen'.

For those who missed the original, it appears at

As you know, it's rare that Conservancy offers specific patches upstream to
our member projects, but I've attached a patch that updates the documentation
regarding Signed-Off-By.

While the Git and Linux projects use this specifically to refer to a DCO as
published on the URL provided, other projects have various meanings of
Signed-Off-By, and we noticed in a recent check of Conservancy member
projects that details on it vary.  Ultimately, I don't think Git wants anyway
to opine about the meaning of Signed-off-by for every project that uses Git,
so this documentation change hedges while still explaning and recommending
the DCO used by Linux and Git.

Peff gave me some feedback on this change and we did a bit of redrafting in a
private email thread, but I think this is now ready for public review and
discussion.

I apologize in advance if I've made a mistake in format or form in submitting
this patch; it's my first upstream contribution to Git!  I did try my best to
follow Documentation/MyFirstContribution.txt carefully! :)
